Anthem for unaccompanied choir (piano for rehearsal only), first performed at a festal evensong for St Frideswide on 19 October 1973 at St Frideswide?s Church, Osney, Oxford, by the combined choirs of Wolfson College, Oxford, and St Frideswide?s Church, in the presence of the President (Sir Isaiah Berlin) of Wolfson College, Oxford, and Lady Berlin, and of the Vice-President (Michael Brock) of Wolfson. The composer and librettist were at the time lodgers at the Vicarage and Churchwardens of the Church.

A distinguished musicologist who saw the anthem on Sibelius wrote to the composer: 'Wow, the anthem is really something!!! It took a little getting used to how Sibelius sounds … but I think the piece could really make an effect in performance - very word-sensitive (no surprise, given your later activities), and with a freshness to the harmonic progressions. Bravo!'
